I have plenty of BBQ size propane tanks.   Enough to run my grill & genny for 10 years.

 

Now I'm considering buying a 100 lb propane tank.    Lowes has them,  HD has them.

How do you get them filled, and get them home ?     I certainly can't lift them.

I'd just like to have 1 for my genny.

 

 

BTW:  if anyone needs a BBQ 20lb size propane tank,  I have empty ones for $15 each.   Better than spending $30 at Home Depot for an empty.

Then you take mine to HD for exchange, and they give you a filled tank for $19.97

Most of the larger tanks are either delivered by the propane company or filled onsite... tho 100lb can be hand trucked.

The largest usu that are move by hand seems to be the 40lb tank on trailers/campers.

 

I run 2 - 120gal tanks... about 400 lbs each or so filled ( each hold 80% or 100gal when filled )... they were delivered and once a year filled by truck/hose.

Hand truck, pickup truck. Done it many times. I'd rather move those than O2, N2, CO2 etc, those are high pressure tanks in most cases and heavy as Hell (Yes, CO2 is 850 PSI but they usually use downgraded HP tanks)

I have 2 BBQ propane tanks I am selling.  $10 each.      Much cheaper than paying Home Depot $30 each for an empty tank.

PM me.

I mean if you get a large enough tank you can get it delivered by a propane supplier. I used to rent a home in Sound Beach that used either propane or CNG for heat and hot water. I'm not sure what the minimum sizes for delivery is. You might want to call whoever is local to you and ask some questions

NC Fire Marshal said only a 30lb tank is legal to move in a private vehicle. Pretty sure he meant a car.
40 LB or larger is not legal in a car.
He did qualify that by saying many of his guys could not tell by looking and most police can’t tell at all without reading it.

Paraco delivers to me but I'm running    2 - 100 gallon tanks.  ( not LBS )

 

Don't think they fill unless at least 50 gall ( aprox 200lbs ) tank as a neighbor gets 100 lb tanks delivered by hand truck

 

 

 

* 1 gallon of propane weighs 4.2 pounds. A "full" 20 lb cylinder should have 4.7 gallons or propane in it.
